A lovely lady to whom we gave a lift - look at her smile!
We are now in Bageovgrad, staying in the Christ Hotel, just next to an impressive church. The plan is to go back up to visit Rila Monastery, high in the mountains behind us, before going further south to near the border with Greece to visit some delightful old villages there. Unlikely to find an internet computer in the next day or two - but plenty of uploads here from yesterday.
The ground is damp from last night's rain, but some blue sky has appeared in the last half an hour, so we will see how it goes on the weather front. Thinking of keeping the car another day to venture further east towards the birthplace of Orpheus.
